    Beautiful, Ron! I'm pink with envy over here... mine has shown no sign of spiking since last fall.

    Just got an Oncidium Twinkle.. .primary hybrid but what I see here is that nature evolved species are superior to man made hybrids....

    well mine was just 9.99... but well that pink and yellow... looks amazing!
    do you have a photo of the whole plant?

    Stephano...sorry I did not take a picture of the plant. The plant is more robust than Onc Twinkle. Oncidium cheirophorum, the other parent of Onc Twinkle, is a mini that brings down the size of ornithorhynchum. I am of the opinion that one can not beat ornithorhynchum for color, beauty and fragrance in this genus.
